About the product

This report is intended as a checklist and guidebook on best practices related to mining. It aims to present a basis for action within South Eastern Europe and the Tisza River Basin towards the development of regulatory frameworks and governance guidelines suitable for the support of a modern mining industry in the region. In particular, the report seeks to present a number of options and ideas that can be applied to address the funding and execution of mine closure and mine rehabilitation while still achieving social and economic conditions suitable for new and ongoing mining activities.
